Information theory provides achievable limits of digital communication. The Information theoretic inequalities prover (Xitip) proves or disproves all Shannon type inequalities. The algorithm used in this software was proposed by Raymond Yeung and Ying-On Yan. Xitip is an adaptation of their software, called ITIP, which originally uses the linear programming solver in MATLAB's Optimization Toolbox. Xitip uses a C-based linear programming solver instead. The core code for parsing information inequalities and setting up the corresponding linear program stems from ITIP.
